Common Application
The MXT-1901-PAN is ideal for boardrooms, conference rooms, or auditoriums where
a panoramic control surface is needed to provide access to multiple functions
simultaneously while remaining elegantly unobtrusive. In residences, it is perfect for
kitchens, home theaters, or home offices where the panoramic control surface can be
used to manage systems throughout the house.
• Panoramic Control Surface – Combined with the new PanTastic UI, the
panoramic touch panels take the user experience to a whole new level with an
impressive control surface to perform activities much in the same way you use a
computer – multi-tasking with dedicated spaces.
• Apps - Modero X Series G5 touch panels now have the ability to run stand-alone
applications (apps) within the control environment.
• Future Technology Visions – HD video chat and conferencing using integrated
camera and hardware - ready to support Near Field Communication (NFC)
Technology, which promises short-range wireless technologies that deliver
peer-to-peer communication by 'sharing, pairing and transaction' between RF
devices like exchanging data/identities.
• Enhanced Usability – HD video streaming.
• Graphic Leaps & Bounds – The Modero X Series includes some striking new
intuitive UI functionality including: gesturing, swiping, dynamic reordering and
enhanced animation capabilities
• Perfect From Any Angle – Includes In-Plane Switching (IPS), the latest
technology in popular tablet/mobile devices that delivers the widest viewing
angles and the most accurate color reproduction on the market.

FIG. 2 Rear connectors
The MXT-1901-PAN does not have individual channels on the base of the device to
allow passage of cables from underneath the base. Instead, it has one slot at the base
to allow options on cable configuration, with channels for securing power, Ethernet,
and Micro-USB cables (FIG. 3).
Tie-wrap channels
FIG. 3 Tie-wrap for power connector ferrite
Each channel side has slots for attaching tie-wraps to secure each cable. The ferrite
on the power cable must be secured with the included tie-wrap during installation to
prevent the possibility of the panel not sitting flush on the table.
Wiring Guidelines
The MXT-1901-PAN uses a 12 VDC-compliant power supply to provide power to the
panel via the 2-pin 3.5 mm captive wire PWR connector. Use the previously provided
power requirement information to determine the power draw. The incoming PWR and
GND wires from the power supply must be connected to the corresponding locations
within the PWR connector.
NOTE: Apply power to the panel only after installation is complete.
NOTE: Connecting power to the MXT-1901-PAN should be done using the included 2pin 3.5mm captive wire connector included with the device. This connector is retained
within its port with locking screws instead of the pins on each side of standard captive
wire connectors, and using force to insert a standard captive wire connector may
damage the device.
Wiring a Power Connection
Connecting to a Master
To use the 2-pin 3.5 mm captive wire connector with a 12 VDC-compliant power
supply, the incoming PWR and GND wires from the external source must be
connected to their corresponding locations on the connector (FIG. 4). The connector
uses locking screws to insure a connection to the device, so make sure to insert and
tighten the screws before applying power.
The panel requires that you establish the type of connection you want to make
between it and your Master.
In the NetLinx page:
Press Mode to toggle through the available connection modes:
Connection Modes
Power Supply
Mode Description
The device connects to the first
master that responds.
This setting requires that you set
the System Number.
Setting the System Number:
1. Select Master System Number to open
the keypad.
2. Set your Master System Number and
select OK.
The device connects to the
specific IP of a master via a TCP
This setting requires that you set
the Master’s IP.
Setting the Master IP:
1. Select the Master IP number to open the
2. Set your Master IP and select OK.
The device “listens” for the
Master to initiate contact.
This setting requires you provide
the master with the device’s IP.
Confirm device IP is on the Master URL list.
You can set the Host Name on the device
and use it to locate the device on the master.
Host Name is particularly useful in the DHCP
scenario where the IP address can change.
To the Touch Panel
FIG. 4 NetLinx power connector wiring diagram
Insert the PWR and GND wires on the terminal end of the 2-pin 3.5 mm
captive wire cable. Match the wiring locations of the +/- on both the power
supply and the terminal connector.
Tighten the clamp to secure the two wires. Do not tighten the screws
excessively; doing so may strip the threads and damage the connector.
Verify the connection of the 2-pin 3.5 mm captive wire to the external
12 VDC-compliant power supply and apply power.
Configuring the MXT-1901-PAN
The MXT-1901-PAN is equipped with a Settings app that allow you to set and
configure various features on the panel. For more information on connecting and
configuring the MXT-1901-PAN to a network, please refer to the Modero X Series G5
Programming Guide, available at
Accessing the Settings App

From the Settings app page, select NetLinx. This opens a password keypad.
Enter the panel password into the keypad (the default is 1988) and select OK to
access the subpage.
Setting the Panel’s Device Number and Device Name
In the NetLinx subpage:
Press Device Number to open the NetLinx editing window.
Enter a unique Device Number assignment for the panel and press OK.
Enter a unique Device Name assignment for the panel and press OK.
Accessing the Ethernet Subpage
From the Settings app, select Ethernet. This opens a password keypad.

If you have enabled password security on your Master, you need to set the username and password within the device.
a. Select Username to open the NetLinx editing window.
b. Set your Username and Master Password.
e. Click OK to return to the NetLinx page.
Configuring the Panel to a Network
The first step is to configure the panel’s communication parameters. This only
configures the panel to communicate with a network, and it is still necessary to tell the
panel with which Master it should be communicating.
Network Communication With a DHCP Address
In the Ethernet subpage:
Toggle the DHCP/Static field to open the DHCP/Static window. DHCP is the default
setting.This action causes all fields on the Ethernet subpage (other than Host Name)
to be greyed-out.
Select Host Name to open the Host Name window. Enter the new host name
and click OK.
Network Communication with a Static Address
In the Ethernet subpage:
Toggle the DHCP/Static field to open the DHCP/Static window.
Select Static in the window. This opens the Static IP editing window.
Click on any field to open either a keypad (for numeric entries) or keyboard (for alphanumeric entries). To minimize the keypad/keyboard, click the two downward-pointing
arrows at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Enter your network’s information in the Static IP editing window. To move from field to
field, simply press the next field you wish to edit.
When finished, click OK to save your changes and return to the Ethernet subpage.
